Yep, Halloween Heart. Because Halloween is my favorite-est favorite and I'm spreadin' the love! Lora here with a fun project using the Mini Display Tray-Heart.
started out using the overlay tray (front piece) as a template for my
orange paper, cutting carefully inside the pencil line, which is a much
truer cut and fits the shape without too much trimming afterwards. I
also cut out my background paper for the solid back piece. I glued both
papers in place.
again, using the overlay tray as a template, I traced around the images
I decided were suited to each section of the tray. In this case, I cut
OUTSIDE of the lines so I would have a little extra paper space to glue
onto the frame.
I then used a scalpel (you can also use a craft
knife) for some detailed fancy cutting on the images so that the
background paper would show through.
above photo shows me checking the layout before I glued things down.
Next step was to glue each piece to the underside of the overlay tray.
Once all the components were secure I gave it a few minutes to dry.....
glued the overlay tray on top of the back piece, taking care to make
sure all the edges lined up neatly. The hard part for me is waiting for
the darn thing to dry. So I went into the kitchen and made some
An hour later I flipped the piece over and painted the back black. I also chose one of the Stackable Labels from the Stackable Labels Shape Set and painted it black (back and front).
covered the top layer of the label with the orange paper I used on the
overlay, printed out 'We Love Halloween" and glued it on the bottom of
I wanted to attach the label to the heart with wire, so
I lined up the label, centering at the top of the heart and carefully
marked both pieces with a marker, indicating where I wanted the holes to
be (two holes for each piece)
You can see my tiny white dots on each piece, well at least you can on the label, referencing where to drill.
used my little hand drill to make the four holes, made two jump rings
out of my favorite hardware store wire, and attached the two pieces. I
glued a little eye hook the the label, added a couple of details like a
tiny witches hat, a pair of glasses and the number 31. It's ready to
